Sacrifices at the Altar of Photographic Alteration

Tuesday, May 25, 2021 – 5:30 pm to 7:15 pm CST

Speaker: Stephen J. Fletcher
Photography can be seen as a history of limitations, producing slivers of time and place extracted from larger life using the technology then available.  What happens, however, when we apply new technologies to old photographs? What do we gain and lose when we sacrifice an original photograph to produce a new incarnation?  Join us as photographic archivist Stephen Fletcher presents an examination of the practice and ethics of image alteration from the “First Photograph” to Photoshop.
This virtual meeting and presentation is open to all, but registration is required.
